Enter our competition and win a three-night stay for two at JA Manafaru, Maldives
Palatial in size, in the south-eastern part of the continent it’s found on, this building is the largest of its kind. Should you find yourself visiting to attend a happening in one of its 13 halls – there are around 300 events to choose from annually – look out for the colourful murals on display, which tell tales of the country’s historical figures and milestones. Built in the 20th century to celebrate the 1,300th anniversary of the destination it’s located in, the vast history that surrounds this building includes Mongol and Ottoman invasions, liberations and a city that was considered a “Third Rome”
centuries ago due to its religious and economic power. Inside the concert halls, you may find yourself sharing space with a world-famous crooner – rocker Sting, “Godfather of Soul” James Brown and famed tenor Andrea Bocelli have all taken to the stage here. The venue also champions local culture, hosting annual festivals that
showcase art, literature, dance and film. Where are you?
